FBLA Wins at Regional Conference!
March 9, 2016
The Menchville branch of FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) had over 20 students place in the top 3 in a variety of categories at this year’s spring regional competition. The competition was held Saturday, March 7th, at the Peninsula Workforce Development Center in Hampton.
Business and personal finance teacher Adrienne Caldwell says “This conference is for business students to expand their knowledge and compete regionally against other schools. Menchville came out full force!” Students can compete in multiple ways, for example, Baking and Financial Systems, Business Calculations, and Business communication involve taking a test ahead of time. Whereas, categories like Future Business Leader and Job Interview involve sending in resumes and participating in a mock interview at the competition. “We did better than any other school in the region! I’m proud of the kids,” says club advisor Diane Zawadzki.
